       I read this a couple of times, and didn't get it. Now I think I have. I assume there's a digital display embedded in the cake, which is connected to a SIM card. You give well-wishers the special phone number, then they txt a greeting to you and you can see it displayed within the cake. If this is the case, hv a bn. If not, hv a bn.   

       Therein lies the problem. Bun and bone, in txt speak, are identical.   

       Hv a bn anyway [+]

       r all my bns actually bns then?   

       I did actually visualise electronic candles that lit up when a message was being displayed but I considered that a little tcky.
